been trying to get rid of this monkey for years
You must login to vote
then one day I turn around and he's gone
lost him somewhere in the dark dusty past
along a stretch of road, along an arc of time
and I've learned not to go looking for him...
my heart has slowly been thawing out
and I don't scream in my sleep anymore
finding that while I'm losing a lot
I'm still winning all at once, all at once...
the smoke is clearing and out of the ashes
the Phoenix is born again, he comes to life
and from the flames I rise, I rise, I rise...
